Terror At 20,000 Feet - A remake of that episode was of course the best thing in the 1983 Twilight Zone Movie, with John Lithgow in the Shatner role. Great stuff.

It was a gremlin, and that episode was written by the late, great Richard Matheson (I Am Legend) who wrote most of the best Zones.

When they revived the TV show in 85 or 86, the boys recorded the opening theme music. Perfect choice, no?

Merl Saunders and the Grateful Dead did a soundtrack album for the remake as well. From what I remember it was more Merl's project than the Deads. He asked them to help. This also explains the TZ tunings in the 80s and those couple shows with Merl sitting in as guest during this period.

Alos funny was the reference to those stories when Shatner was a repeating guest on Lithgow's 3rd Rock from the Sun.
